From my own experience I know one thing; getting a good recommendation for books is such a laborious job. I have wasted so much time reading reviews, surfing websites, looking at other readers’ book shelves. So I thought about starting this thread where you can post your 5 star books.

Remember books you gave 4/5 stars only!!
And also write a line about to whom you would recommend this book.

And also number the book so it's easy for everyone to go through the list.

"The Hero's Walk" by Anita Rao Badami

This book is shelved with classics in my local public library. Now that's something for a contemporary fiction to be shelved with classics.

Reccomend to: who wants to read real Indian books about Indian values, family system, the way relationships works.
